Beautiful image with great discussion points and classic histology.

Classic histology for what? PLGA, ACC, or PA?

This is adenoid cystic carcinoma of the hard palate. 100% of the biopsy was lesional tissue. The degreee of cribiforming is good for that diagnosis. Smaller biopsies, or biopsies with less diagnostic tissue than this could be signed out as c/w ACC BUT PLGA and PA can not be ruled out due to the limited nature of the biopsy.

Classic histology for adenoid cystic... (sorry for the delayed reponse). Don't forget, these occur in locations other than the salavary glands. This is a great example in breast - [Ref #1]

Adenoid cystic carcinoma; can perform p63 or other basal cell markers to visialise the peripheral layer of basaloid cells.

SALH - welcome to the Site! Agree adenoid cystic. I have no idea why I though this was in the breast back in 2008... although there is also a nice post on the site of adenoid cytic carcinoma in breast - [Ref #1]
